nbn co launches NNI link to help RSPs connect
nbn co has announced NNI link, a new product that gives retail service providers (RSPs) an alternative form of access to nbn co’s Points of Interconnect (POI) and the ability to improve services for their customers.
NNI link will provide RSPs the ability to acquire Access Virtual Circuit (AVC) and Connectivity Virtual Circuit (CVC) directly from nbn co without needing a physical connection to all 121 of its POIs.
nbn co said the aim is to enable RSPs to take advantage of competitive backhaul offers from wholesale providers to rapidly build scale, while maintaining the ability to manage their own CVC contention and contact nbn co directly for connection and assurance requests.
“The NNI link product, in concert with backhaul products from wholesale providers, offers a quick and easy way for retailers to increase their footprint. Being able to buy AVC and CVC directly from nbn co gives retailers access to the latest pricing bundles and direct access to nbn co for support,” said nbn co General Manager of New Business and Innovation Streicher Louw.
“NNI link is a great example of collaborative development between nbn co and its customers: using nbn co’s innovative early market deployment process, we were able to take an idea proposed by our customers, consult with industry and launch a fully functional product within nine months.
NNI link became available to RSPs on 2 July.
